    Talion motor upgrade. Turnigy motors

    I would like some opinions/advice from anyone who has changed the motor to a lower kv in an arrma 1/8. I currently have a turnigy xk4074 2000 kv motor. Running 17/50 gearing on 4S it's right up to the limit in terms of temperature at about 65-75c (149-167f) on 4S but on 6S it goes above 90c...

I know it can be used with the stock esc being its only 130amps but i want something that...

    Kraton Castle Mamba Monster X/1515-2200Kv motor combo

    I went and got this combo today from a LHS. They matched the price Castle is selling it for on their website,which I thought was cool. I only had a few issues with installation. First I couldn't get the 14t pinion off the stock BLX motor. I have a pinion puller but I couldn't use it because of...

    Talion Arrma Talion overheating

    I've had my new Talion v3 out for a couple of runs now. Really impressed with it so far. I went to my work car park when it was mostly empty today so I'd have space to pull the trigger right back (briefly) but after about a half hour of driving / skidding it around the car cut out suddenly and...

I have the hobbywing in my typhon but after another motor for a different car. Is there any advantages over both motors like torque, power, rotor size etc or...

    My new Hobbywing system...

    This is going to be a "initial impression review" of the Hobbywing EZ Run MAX10SCT 120amp ESC and its accompanying model 3660, 3300kv motor. Some background: my brushless experience is limited to inexpensive (ok, cheap!) Turnigy components and systems from Hobby King (which ARE cheap and -knock...

    Granite upgrade or get something "better"?

    I'm having fun with the brushed Voltage. However, is it worth upgrading to brushless? And how difficult would that be? It looks like I'd need a new ESC and receiver. I can mount a new motor probably without issue. Or should I save and get something better? I'm looking at a Redcat Blackout XBE...

    Granite New Motor on the way

    So I burnt up my ESC and motor in my Granite Mega 4X4 and need to replace them. Whats your guy's thoughts on this set-up? Anything I need to watch out for besides temps and gearing? Has anyone run this setup on a Mega before? If so what gearing did you use to keep it running cool?

    Kraton Anyone try the Castle 1717?

    I had a 4070 TpPoer 1700kv in my Kraton, I use 4s had a 14 tooth pinion.. never got over 100 degrees barely. It was fast enough for my yard. I am now experimenting with the Traxxas version of Castles 1717 1650kv. I have only ran this (always had a MMX) motor 3 times and it is still COLD here...

    Granite engine fan/heatsink, worth it?

    I ordered this: I'm running a 3500kv brushless system with a 2S 50C 5000mAh LiPO. Is it worth it? There's already a fan on the ESC.

    Just upgraded to brushless in my Arrma granite with a Sidewinder setup. Everything programmed but sometimes when I'm running it there is a delay. I hit the gas and it will run and stall run and stall then take off like nothing is wrong
